MINISTER OF EDUCATION CONFIRMS CREATION OF LIMA 2019 LEGACY ENTITY, PROPOSED BY PEJP
The proposal to create an entity seeks not only to ensure that the infrastructure is maintained over time, but also to strengthen the legacy in a cross-sectional way.
Within the framework of Gustavo San Martín being announced as the new president of the Peruvian Institute of Sport (IPD), the minister of Education, Flor Pablo, confirmed the creation of a Management Unit affiliated to the Ministry of Education that will be in charge of the legacy left by Lima 2019. The initial announcement had already been made by the president of the Council of Ministers during the presentation of the 2021 Government Plan.
The minister pointed out that this unit would be assigned to her Ministry and the idea is that it will later be managed by the IPD, after it is reorganized under the leadership of Gustavo San Martín, who assumed the position after being in charge of the Sports Functional Area at Lima 2019.
The Special Project has sent a policy proposal for the creation of the Legacy Entity to the Ministry of Education. The proposal suggests a duration of six years and is based on the legacy planning that the PEJP has been carrying out.
The proposal to create an entity seeks not only to ensure that the infrastructure is maintained over time, but also to strengthen the legacy in a cross-sectional way, boosting socio-educational transformations and urban regeneration in the city and in society. The proposed Legacy Entity includes the management of the main sports precincts, as well as the implementation of an Urban Master Plan for the Pan American Village.
